Alice in Wonderland

Ive been in Auckland again for work and our massive work do. Good times! I had a horrible sleep on Wednesday then had to get up at 5.30 to fly up to Auckland. Worked all day then chilled at the hotel, went for a swim in the pool. Friday we spent a day at one of our Customer Service Centres, it was a very cruisy day was awesome not to be stuck in front of a computer all day. We then headed back to the Hotel where we chilled for a bit then got ready for our work do at the fancy Hyatt Regency Hotel. My camera is massive so I didnt take it with me, hoping to steal some pics off my workmates when they post them on Facebook - I did get my workmate to snap a few pics of me all dressed up. If you hadnt guessed the theme was Alice in Wonderland, I couldnt be bothered going in full costume so I just incorporated hearts (Queen of Hearts) into my outfit. Cue cheesy $2 headband with hearts, heart earrings, heart ring, hearts on my bangle and pink bits in my hair hehe.

Dress - Valley Girl, Heels - Kumfs

Also snapped a few pics of the Hotel room, heres our massive bathroom:

                                 View out our window of Auckland central Police Station!

The work do was awesome basically I got smashed (not in an embarrasing way dont worry) Its so hard to keep track of how many drinks your having when there free! We started off with pre-drinks out on a rooftop balcony massive thing haha then awards/speeches, then dinner and drinks galore! Dancing and talking shite a many then hit the town after. To be honest I dont even know what time I got home and I woke up still fully clothed in my dress under just the duvet not the blankets lol still boozed when I woke up - good times! Needless to say I didnt do alot lastnight but sleep and chill out. We have another work do next weekend for just the Christchurch team and our partners, couldnt take partners to the big do as theres nearly 400 in the company as it is!

Oh and the lame thing about the night was there were two other chicks wearing the same dress :(

Hope you all had a great weekend, the weather has been great - so looking forward to summer!! xxx

Im Home! But not for long....

Did you miss me? Ive been in Auckland for a week for work, free food yay!haha. We stayed at Sky City as usual as our work up there is right across the road. There was a bit if excitement on Thursday when a building had to be demolished across the road, they had the road blocked off all night bit of excitement for the tourists! It was funny because it was all over the news - one building gets bowled in Auckland and its on the news - what about the building getting bowled still in Christchurch every day after the Earthquake? Harden up Auckland! Anywho nothing much else happened while I was away it was all work and food really hehe. I went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 with my mummy on Thursday then we had some dinner which was a lovely evening. Good to be back home in my own bed though. Alas only for 5 days though as I have to fly back up to Auckland on Thursday at some ungodly hour, work all day then work all day the Friday then its our work do at the fancy Hyatt regency Hotel which will be interesting!! Its that time of year where theres lots of parties and work do's, Ive pretty much got something on every weekend until Christmas now!

To my outfit, this was worn a few weeks ago, this skirt is quite girly for me but I like the cut and the roses.

Wedges - Cotton On, Skirt - Farmers, Top - Mum, Belt - Pagani

I hope you have all had a great week and weekend! Hopefully I can catch up on some of your blogs today xxx

Cup Day 2010

As you know I went to my first Cup Day at Addington Raceway in Christchurch on Tuesday. It was definately an interesting day! I got (mostly) ready at home then went roudn to my mates about 9.30am or so and they were already drinking! Tell you what its weird drinking so early on a random Tuesday! We finished off getting ready, cooked a big BBQ breakfast and wandered across the road around 12.30. Was very convenient being across the road - no parking worries for us. I actually didnt take as many pictures as I would have liked, lets just say I was rather drunk and forgot about it haha.

Getting ready

Me and Mel

As you can see it was a perfect day except it was a tad on the windy side - a few girls loosing hats and flashing lol, luckily my dress was tight so it didnt blow up, however it did ride up when I walked which was a bit annoying. I managed to smuggle in some wine but funnily enough had to tip my water bottle out which was full of.....water, very annoying. All in all though a good day, def better than being at work. I got home about 7.30 drunk as a skunk which im sure the bf found amusing hehe. Ive still got the rest of the week off but im a bit dissapointed as I was planning on getting a good nights sleep lastnight, getting up early and going to the gym......instead I spent my night barely sleeping in pain with a sore stomach :( Its still a bit sore but Im hoping it goes away as I have a hair appointment in a few hours!

Hope you are all having a great week xxx

Girls girls girls

The bf has gone off to Dunedin with some friends for the weekend so Im home by myself :( I thought it would be a good opportunity for a girls night! Friday a few of my workmates came over and we had some fish n chips and some drinks, I shopped up a storm yesterday - perfect sport to do while bf is away haha, then lastnight a few of my mates came over for drinks, nibbles and gossip :) I must admit I am feeling pretty lonely today.....I slept in till 12.15 and im watching Gossip Girl online lol lazy sunday much? I guess I could go visit people but I honestly cant be bothered.

I wore this a few weeks ago, exscuse the crap quality pics not sure what those dots are all about. It was kinda cold so I layers up, I like the shirt, gives the outfit something different and a bit of colour. I couldnt decide on what shoes went best though so I have pics of both - what shoes do you think go better?

wedges - Cotton On, tights - Farmers, Skirt - Supre, T-shirt- Supre, Shirt - Jay Jays, Leather Jacket - Glassons
Wedges - Number One Shoe Warehouse

Im not sure if everyone knows who he is but basically he was a aussie vigilante sort of dude - google Chopper Reid - this fella travels over the world performing comedy shows looking, acting and sounding like the original Chopper, think swearing, straight up honesty and a bit of violence thrown in. makes for some good laughs!!

Me and Chopper

James and Chopper

Maxi Styles

I was on the hunt for a plain black maxi dress for aaaaaaaages. I found one quite some time ago at Dress Smart but it was a bit too cold for it, I managed to crank it out the other week. Decided to go with a black and white theme, added my bow headband for some cutness factor hehe.

Dress - Cotton On, Wedges - Cotton On, Belt - ?, Cardy - Trademe

I cant wait to wear it over the warmer months. I so stoked today I totally forgot I only have to work Monday next week then I have the rest of the week off!! Its Cup Day next Tuesday (and cup week in Christchurch - think horse racing and dressing up) and I have never been so Im looking forward to dressing up and drinking wine in the sun (well hopefully!). Ive got dinner to go to Wednesday, hair getting done Thursday then my mate arrives from Australia on Friday whom I havent seen since our joint 21st - gonna be an epic week!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know it was Halloween but we dont really celebrate it in New Zealand, just another day for us lol. I hit a cat yesterday with my car which wasnt ideal :( Ive never hit anything with my car before and it freaked me out! The cat disappeared so Im hoping its ok......and my cars ok :P
